Solution Architecture with .NET

By: Jamil Hallal

Overview of this book

Understanding solution architecture is a must to build and integrate robust systems to meet your client’s needs. This makes it crucial for a professional .NET software engineer to learn the key skills of a .NET solution architect to create a unique digital journey and build solutions for a wide range of industries, from strategy and design to implementation. With this handbook, developers working with the .NET technology will be able to put their knowledge to work. The book takes a hands-on approach to help you become an effective solution architect. You’ll start by learning the principles of the software development life cycle (SDLC), the roles and responsibilities of a .NET solution architect, and what makes a great .NET solution architect. As you make progress through the chapters, you’ll understand the principles of solution architecture and how to design a solution, and explore designing layers and microservices. You'll complete your learning journey by uncovering modern design patterns and techniques for designing and building digital solutions. By the end of this book, you'll have learned how to architect your modern web solutions with ASP.NET Core and Microsoft Azure and be ready to automate your development life cycle with Azure DevOps.

Learning to model software architecture using UML

UML is a standard graphical representation that allows us to visualize the specification and design architecture of the software solution; it is a simplified way in which to communicate our architecture to the solution stakeholders. The purpose of the UML is to provide the development team and the business analysts with a unified design modeling notation that empowers them to explain complex business processes with simplified diagrams. Additionally, it enables us to construct and visualize the different software components and how they relate together, which defines the entire design architecture of the solution.

There are two categories of UML diagrams: structural and behavioral. Structural diagrams emphasize the static view of the system. They are used to visualize the different components and objects of the software. Mainly, they describe what is contained in a system.

Behavioral diagrams emphasize the dynamic view of the...
